This section is not intended to be a review of existing CDs. Good critics have done this already, and are experts on the subject. I just wish to draw your attention to particular works and interpretations.

Some of Beethoven's students wrote pieces which have become famous. Amongst the best known are Carl Cerzny, Ferdinand Ries, the Archduke Rodophe...

Here are a few of the CDs which exist, but there exist many more. Happy listening...

Title Carl Czerny (1791-1857)

Two very nice works of Beethoven's pupil who is also Liszt's master:

- The Nonet, dated 1850;

- The 'Grande Sérénade concertante', opus 126, dated 1827.

The booklet is very interesting too, and presents parts of the score.

Czerny composed in 1827, the "Marche funèbre sur la mort de Beethoven" (Funeral March for Beethoven), Opus 146.

It refers to the Funeral March of the Eroïca Symphony and then Czerny develops a very nostalgic theme.
